Wife received a blue slip at interview

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So my wife recently had her interview at HCMC. Unfortunately, she received a 221-G (blue slip). The CO asked her a few questions, handed her a blue slip and sent her on her way. The CO never ask for any additional evidence during the interview which confuses the hell out of me.  It's like they already knew she was getting the blue slip.  It was the generic blue slip asking for ex info, list of her relatives in the US, relationship timeline, family info, credit card statement for airline ticket purchase. Now my question to you guys is, have any of you guys ever received a blue slip for this additional evidence.  if yes, after turning in the additional evidence, did you get approval for your visa?  I just feel like the recent immigration fraud arrests happening in Houston had something to do with our refusal.

I just looked up the Texas fraud indictments and yikes.  That can't be good for people trying to get a Visa.  Are you from Texas by any chance?  Did you not spend much time with her prior to getting married?  Sorry to hear about your situation!

The requested documents are often asked for at the consulate.  Did you front load your application?  We included all these and more when submitting our 129f.

 

Because Houston has a large Vietnamese population, they may be asking for credit card statements to see who paid for your trip.  The list of relatives will show if she has family near you.  Together,  the 2 documents are used to determine if a family member arranged your relationship.

 

The CO did make a decision about your fiance's visa before the interview, which is why front loading in Vietnam and many other countries is so important.  Don't worry too much...submit the requested information and you should be ok.

 

Good luck! - Jason

Family tree used to determine if you are related to your fiancé. If you share same ethnicity then they are trying to determine if related.  A common past practice of trickery was to marry a relative to immigrate them.

Unfortunately that is common among the Vietnamese community. There was one Vietnamese American guy, actually was a cop, was pressured by his wife’s family to fake divorce his own wife then petitioned the wife’s sister and pretended he never knew her. The whole thing went belly up and he was prosecuted criminally. The Judge handed out a very harsh sentence because he was in law enforcement, something like 8-10 years or something like that.

Yeah guys, I’m just worried if they don’t accept the documents this time, we will be put in AP for a long time. I didn’t even think about side loading any of that stuff. I wish I would have done it now. Only red flags I can think of is maybe she apply for a tourist visa and was denied. And also, after I met her in Vietnam, I never went back to visit her before we got married. It was about a year.

I am from Louisiana. Everybody in the Vietnamese community knows about what happened in Houston and it’s said that the good has to suffer for the bad.

When I went to my fiance's interview on Tuesday, I was the only US citizen there with their fiance/spouse for the interview.  From what I saw, all the interviews were short (5 - 10 minutes).  It looked like a lot of people got blue slips, including one woman who was there for a CR1 interview that my fiancee was chatting with in the line for the biometrics.
